Joslin Shows Improvement
The work of Dick Joslin showed the
greatest improvement in the defens-
ive department, according to Cappon,
and his shift to the back court on
defense appears to be permanent.
Joslin was also working effectively
off the backboards, especially during+
the first half, and his brilliant recov-
eries led to several scores, as he regis-
tered one spectacular tip-in shot for
his own part.
The play of John Gee at center
which featured the game also came in
for considerable comment at yester-1
day's practice. Gee, who led the
Wolverine scoring with 13 points, was
generally credited with displayingl
some of the form which the coaching
staff had hoped to realize.1
Scores On Pivot Shot
Especially effective in Gee's play
was the left-hand pivot shot just
away from the basket, with which he
counted four times, a tip-in follow1
shot and a long shot, with one foult
goal, completing his scoring.
Gee also showed considerable formt
at the pivot position, directing" thei
attack. On the jump at center Geei
was able to control the ball for thet
most part, but the big sophomore was
taken aside following yesterday'sc
practice by Coach Bennie Ooster-
baan for further drilling in that de- 1

able to pronounce last Saturday's per-
formance against Chatham as the
best of the season.
Vic Heyliger and Dick Berryman,
the only sophomores on the team,
were pointed out as the most im-
proved players of the week-end - not
only defensively but offensively.
Berryman has probably come the
farthest of the two. Unable to show
much in his first two games, he
seemed to gain confidence against
Chatham and besides being an im-
portant cog in forming one of the
tightest defenses seen on Coliseum ice,
showed an aggressiveness on offense
which surprised fans who have seen'
him in action before.
One of the most encouraging as-
pects of the game was the comeback
of Heyliger. After an ineffectual
performance the week before, the
Wolverine center bore out the con-
viction of Lowrey that he has great
possibilities by his good defensive
work and fine puck handling against
the. Maroons. His coach was not
thoroughly satisfied, however, point-
ing out that he is weak on "crash-
ing" the defense once he' has worked
the puck through the opposing for-
wards. Lowrey plans to drill him
on this important phase of the solo
dash this week and expects to see
him hit the net Wednesday against
McMaster University.
Michigan's stellar defense men,
Larry David and Red MacCollum,
and John Jewell, goalie, had one of
their best nights, Jewell giving the
fans anxious moments with his num-
erous headlong slides in front of the

score and broke Goalie Peardon's
string of shut-outs with a twang.

Firing a coach because he can't
produce winning teams has been the
r'ule in the Big Ten as well as every-
where else in the country -so mucl
so that it is refreshing to find a col-
lege faculty which sees fit to remove
a head football coach because it is
felt that his influence on the players
is not of the best.
Resignation Of
L. S. U. Coach
Still In Doubt
Breach Caused By Jones'
Refusal To Allow - Sen.
Huey Long To Speak
BATON ROUGE, La., Dec. 17 -(P)
- The Louisiana Tigers, plucky little
band of football players, were sitting
in the middle tonight of the heated
row between their coach, Capt. Law-
rence (Biff) Jones and Louisiana's
boss politician, Huey Long.
They were wondering if their coach
could survive the heated argument
he had with Long during the Ore-
1 gon-L.S.U. game Saturday when
Jones refused to let Long talk to the
team at the half when the Tigers
were trailing.
Jones said last night he was going
fishing but today showed up at the
University football office as usual. He
had no definite comment about his
resignation plans, however.
"I still have nothing to say," he
remarked. "I just didn't go on the
Long challenged Jones' authority
to prevent his talking to the squad
and the conversation went something
like this:
"I want to talk to the team," said
"No," replied Jones.
"Who will stop me if I do?"
'Well, you won't talk'."
"You had better win this game."
"Well, if I don't I guess I'm
through?" asked Jones.
"Yes," answered Long.
"Well, get this. Win, lose or draw,
I'm through," shouted Jones, tremb-
ling in anger.
"All right," yelled Long.
Long did not talk to the team at
the half, but Jones did and the Tigers
came out and won the game by one


Take Part In
Wrestling Meet
More than 80 wrestlers are expected
to participate in the All-Campus
wrestling tournament which will begin
at 3 p.m. tomorrow at the Intramural
Building. The matmen will weigh in
Coach Otto Kelly's freshmen squad
will come down from their quarters at
Waterman Gymnasium to mix with
the Varsity squad in the meet. Kelly
has some good grapplers on his team
and in some weights they are expected
to outshine the Varsity team. Earl
Thomas, 118-pound star is one of
Kelly's men who is not expected to
meet with much opposition from the
Varsity men.
Will Determine Starters
The meet will also play a large
part in helping Coach Cliff Keen
determine who will be his starting
men against Michigan State on Jan.
12. Most of the positions are unde-
cided so far, and the wrestlers
who make the best showing in the
next two days will probably have the
best chance for the starting position.
The preliminaries will begin at 3
p.m. tomorrow and the finals will be
run off at 4 p.m. Thursday. Each pre-
liminary bout will take seven minutes
while the finals will be allowed ten
A one-minute time advantage in the
main bout will be sufficient for a vic-
torious decision, while if the bout goes
into an overtime period 30 seconds will
be considered adequate advantage.
In the meet, which is open to any
regularly enrolled student on campus,
a weight allowance of two pounds in
each class will be allowed. The winner
in each weight-class will be given a
gold medal signifying that he is the
University champion.
